Q: How do I go about creating a petition to present to City Hall?
Council has no set rules for petitions, but it is always good to include the addresses of signatories if at all possible. You can submit the petition to the City Clerks department through 311 at firstname.lastname@example.org
or calling 311 for more info. You can contact your City Councillor directly for assistance.
Q: I disagree with the direction in which council is going on the issue of _______. What can I do to make my voice heard?
You can phone, fax or e-mail city councillors and the mayor to let them know your opinion. Contact info is at: www.winnipeg.ca/council/default.stm.
Letters to the editor of the Free Press, Winnipeg Sun and Canstar Communications (Lance, Metro) are very effective. If you wish to speak to an issue in person at a council committee meeting, contact 311 or Jenny’s office at 986 5878 for details.
Q: I have a parking ticket I think is incorrect. Can you do anything about it?
